Olivia Newton-John Gives Her Honest Thoughts About Grease 2
Olivia Newton-John talked about 1982's Grease 2 on Tuesday's Watch What Happens Live
Olivia Newton-John made a visit to Bravo’s late night talk show Watch What Happens Live! on Tuesday night — where she opened up about the 1982 sequel to her career-making musical film, Grease.
Newton-John wasn’t the only one. The Michelle Pfeiffer-film was a box office flop, panned by critics and failing to match the love of the iconic 1978 original.
For a second there, Newton-John and John Travolta almost starred in the sequel.
“They did ask us,” she revealed to Cohen. “They approached John and I to do it and it didn’t happened and I didn’t think it was gonna happen and then they made it with other people. So that’s my memory of it.”

Of course, Newton-John has far better memories of Grease. And she recently sat down to watch the film with Travolta and her husband John Easterling.
It was Easterling’s first time seeing the film.
“He spends a lot of time in the Amazon rain forest, so he really hadn’t seen it,” Newton-John told PEOPLE Now of Easterling. “So John Travolta invited us to dinner — we went to his house. And he had his plane parked outside as you do. And he invited us onto the plane for desert. Because I told him [John] had never seen the movie. And he had the movie playing on the plane while we had desert. So he got to see it that way.”
So did Easterling like it?
“He said, you know that’s a really good movie!” Netwton-John revealed. “He said, ‘You look better now!’ So what can be better than that?”
